On the Identity Trail Students Competing in International Student Voting Design Competition PDF Print
On the Identity Trail's Jeremy Clark, Aleks Essex and Stefan Popoveniuc will be competing in an international student voting design competition in Portland, Oregon, July 16-18. 

Four finalist teams of researchers, from the U.S., Canada, Poland, and UK, will face off in front of a panel of top experts. This competition, the first of its kind, also marks the first time a major voting company has supported such open-ended academic research. Each of the four finalist submissions is a complete open-source voting system, something that has been called for by many but not realized until now. The competition framework also serves to demonstrate what may be a better way to vet and choose voting systems.

Jeremy, Aleks and Stefan are members of Punchscan, a team that also includes Richard Carback (University of Maryland).
 
The VoComp conference will also offer the introductions of several other new voting technologies from some of the top academic and corporate researchers in the field. On the Identity Trail's David Chaum will describe his Scantegrity proposal for enabling voters to verify their votes using standard optical scan technology.
